Stealth specializes in the industrial computer and peripherals market, and its newest product, the LPC-480FS, fits right in with that mold. It's a rugged mini PC that doesn't have any cooling fans, so other than any electrical noise that might possibly emanate from the system, it's silent rig designed for a variety of demanding applications, the company says. Heat is the biggest concern with any PC, especially silent systems that skimp or skips on active cooling. In this case, the system is housed in an extruded aluminum chassis that acts like a giant heatsink. The system measures just 6.1 inches... Read more...
Cutting down the noise emitting from a computer chassis is a constant goal of case builders, and silent cases are typically an exercise in clever engineering. The latest entry into the silent chassis market is Lian-Li’s PC-B12, an all-black all aluminum number that employs noise-reducing foam on the front and side panels and sucks in air through a bottom intake and vents it out through a downward-facing exhaust baffle. The PC-B12 sports two external 5.25-inch drive bays, eight expansion slots, ATX and micro ATX motherboards, and supports up to three 3.5-inch drives and one 2.5-inch drive... Read more...

Astek sends word of their new "Low Cost  Liquid Cooling" solutions targeted at the Digital Home SSF PC... Digital Home PC made silent by new OEM liquid cooling solution Intel Developer Forum, San Francisco, September 26th, 2006. Despite the arrival of multi-core CPUs with lower overall power consumption, system level thermal management faces increasing noise challenges. Consumers are displaying clear preferences for diversified and, especially, smaller form factors why the future use of traditional heatsink and heatpipe coolers will be possible only with significant tradeoffs on...

Our friends at PC Per have just posted a double-review of Asus' 7900 GT Top and 7600 GT Silent video cards. If you're in the market for a good mid-to-high end video card, you'll want to check these cards out. "Looking at the front of the card, you can see that the passive cooling solution is quite a bit larger than the cooling on the reference cards and it needs to be in order to pull all the heat from the GPU effectively. Two heatpipes connect the heat block over the GPU in the center of the card up to the heatsink fins that are located... Read more...
If you're on the hunt for a high-end(but quiet) video card, make sure not to look past ASUS's 7800GT Top Silent card. We've had a chance to inspect ASUS's unique silent cooler design before, and it is quite impressive. Does the cooling performance carry over to a more powerful card like a 7800GT though? "Today we are going to introduce to you a graphics card from ASUS based on Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT and equipped with their own patented passive cooling system aka SilentCool. Let's try to find out if they managed to create a truly high-end and silent graphics solution."... Read more...
Golf ball fan now available in 120mm version Sharkoon Silent Eagle 120mm / with 1000 or 2000 rpm / suggested retail price: $14.69 Sharkoon is introducing a new version of its golf ball case fan: the Silent Eagle is now also available in a 120mm size. The larger model moves more air than an 80mm fan at the same rpms and noise level. The particular advantage of the Silent Eagle is its unique design: the rotor blades have the same surface structure as a golf ball. The blades are covered by small round depressions, which golfers refer to as "dimples". These slight concavities markedly improve... Read more...
  Silent computing and overclocking are two topics that tend to be mutually exclusive.  Typically, when you overclock something, like a graphics card for example, it needs more cooling, which in turn means higher fan speeds and more noise. Luckily though, there are some companies that disregard these notions and give us both lower noise and increased performance. The company in the spotlight today for doing just that is ASUS.  The product getting the attention is the EN7800GT TOP Silent, which is based on the NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT GPU.  As you can guess by the name, this is...

Antec knows a thing or two about cases, so it's always nice to see what their currently up to. Tonight Hardware-Review.net takes a look at Antec's P150 Silent ATX Case, equipped with three 120-mm fans, and sound dampening side panels."Finding a computer case that's silent and chocked full of features is very challenging. Most modern case manufacturers focus on flashy acrylic UV windows, bright blue and red LEDs, and car-finish paint jobs. One company who broke from this mold is Antec when they developed their P150 case. This case isn't flashy by any means from looking at its exterior, but the hidden... Read more...
For the last couple of years, I have been obsessed with keeping my personal rig silent, and have tried just about every type of noise dampening material, every brand of fan, a handful of enclosures, and a ton of different CPU coolers. So I'm always intrigued when a new product hits that has the word "Silent" somewhere in its description. Hardware-Review.Net has taken a look at the Antec P150 Silent ATX case, and it seems pretty cool.  I like the clean look, but the silver and white combo doesn't do it for me."Finding a computer case that's silent and chocked full of features is very...

A GeForce 7800GT with no fans?  Better make sure that case has plenty of ventilation and a little extra slot space for the cooler on this thing! VR-Zone lit it up and it's typical Asus top-notch stuff.The temperature of the N7800GT under load seems directly related to the airflow of the CPU fan. Those with a weak CPU fan can expect to see higher temperatures than those with a CPU fan that has more airflow. However, users of heatsinks that do not have a fan in the usual position over the CPU heatsink (and under the N7800GT's heatsink, in this case) might want to think twice about getting this...

GIGABYTE Announces Second Generation Silent-Pipe Technology -- Silent-Pipe II raises the bar for quiet operation from VGA card coolers -- GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leader in quiet graphics card cooling solutions, today announced Silent-Pipe II technology that generates natural airflow to provide more efficient cooling without the use of a heat sink or fan. This is achieved through a unique design that draws cool air in through a new proprietary front-flow thermal module to remove heat from the heat sink on the VGA card. With the improved natural airflow generated by GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II... Read more...
Good morning folks. There's lots of news flowing in today, some of it due in part to yesterday's announcement that Apple will be using Intel processors in the not so distant future. There's also a full compliment of hardware news in the HH in-box, so we've got plenty of good stuff to keep you busy this morning.  In fact, let me get right to it - I've got to pack a bag and catch a plane to San Fran to meet up with the crew at NVIDIA...  Picking up the pieces: John Siracusa mourns the Power PC @ ARS: "A lot of people are excited about the prospect of a future Apple without the dark...
